PopUp Button is a feature introduced with FileMaker 13 - older versions can't use that )-:
Yes..But once my file is opened in filemaker 12..I cant see the pop-up menu when i use filemaker 13..why does it vanishes?
Tried to reproduce..
- openend a FM13 file with popovers in 12, closed that file
- opened that very same file under 13 - popovers are working as ever
- did the same, changed the layout under V12, closed the file
-> popovers are still there in V13
Any chance that the other user deleted the popovers in V12 because they are showing rectangels without any other function (layout mode)?
I designed the file in Filemaker 12.Then purchased filemaker 13. Uninstalled the fielmaker 12 and installed the filemaker 13..
The file format is PPMS.fmp12 ....
Yes the popovers are shown as just rectangles...and when i try to delete the button...the file hangss
Sounds like a problem with the file or the layout rather than FileMaker 13.
To confirm try testing this on a brand new file created in 13. (But no matter what you try, the popover buttons will not be available to your FileMaker 12 user.)
